City historian, Pat Yeggy, has started to compile information from old city directories. Download the excel spreadsheet linked below and find your address. The first page is a comprehensive listing of all addresses with information on previous residents from 1936 through 1990. There are additional tabs then with more detailed information for 1930, 1932, 1936, and 1949. There is also a tab listing residents of Grandview Court from 1952 to 1961.
How can you find out more? A good start is to simply "google" the names of previous residents. In the case of common names, try also adding "Iowa City"
or "University of Iowa" to the search to find occupations and other connections. If you're really interested in research you can also search city directories at the Iowa State Historical Library in Iowa City.
Please let Pat know of anything that you find out that she can add to her compilation.
